BitGive Launches Mainnet Edition of Bitcoin Donation Platform

BitGive Foundation, the world’s first Bitcoin and blockchain nonprofit charity, has just launched the mainnet edition of its Bitcoin donation platform GiveTrack, Forbes reported December 5.

While the platform’s beta version has already been launched last year, GiveTrack 1.0 just recently went live on BitGive’s mainnet and is now available to the public. The platform, as the foundation originally set out to achieve, was developed in an effort to boost the transparency of crypto donations, allowing donors to closely monitor how their Bitcoin contributions have been expended while minimizing the risk of donation misappropriation.

GiveTrack’s mainnet version, which features multiple upgrades from its beta edition, was initially unveiled during the Latin American Bitcoin and Blockchain Conference in Chile. The platform’s 1.0 version is anchored on a more improved technology, allowing for a better integration of both donors’ and nonprofit organizations’ donations.

Billed as the first of its kind in the arena of blockchain use case charity, the Bitcoin donation platform holds a solid track record in leading humanitarian projects, among which includes the Chandolo Primary School Water Project and the Maternal and Neonatal India Program.

As BitGive executive director and founder Connie Gallippi commented:

“We are very excited to launch GiveTrack 1.0 after many months of hard work from our team. It is an honor to launch with four amazing NGO partners who are doing important work around the world, and a pleasure to have this occasion at the Latin American Bitcoin Conference where we have always received a tremendous amount of support.

Aside from multiple other charitable projects, the foundation has also disclosed plans of hosting a Global Bitcoin Fundraiser meant for the first few charity organizations that have adopted the foundation’s platform, including America Solidaria, Desafío Levantemos Chile, Code To Inspire from Afghanistan, Run for Waterate, and more. Furthermore, BitGive is additionally supporting other nonprofit organizations through its #Give1BTC campaign.
